Let’s see 5 amazing reasons to start knitting.
Have you noticed that everybody is knitting these days??
But is there something special about knitting? Why is everyone enjoying knitting?
Well, there is a reason, or more reasons!!
1.Knitting is like a relaxing therapy, which actually makes you happy!
This activity is known as the new yoga!
The relaxation response brings down blood pressure and heart rate and helps to prevent stress-related illnesses.
Knitting can reduce depression, anxiety and stress.
While knitting, the focus is turned elsewhere and this results in a distraction from chronic pain and other problems.
2. Knitting is both calming and productive
It is a creative activity that helps you pass your free time in a wonderful way. Many people start knitting in order to cut smoking. Some others find that craftwork helps them control their weight.

The Internet is full of new designs waiting for you to explore.

3. You make unique gifts to your beloved ones
A handmade gift is full of love and sentiment and will give so much joy.
You can make a baby blanket for your bestie’s newborn or a shawl to your mother or your grandmother. Christmas socks or an ugly Christmas jumper is a clever idea for a gift at the holiday season.
A scarf or beanie are ideal gifts for birthdays since they are easy projects that do not take too long to be finished.
4. As it is a creative activity you can create your own clothes and accessories
You chose the pattern, the yarn, the colors, the size or the length and you actually design your final outcome.
If you love fashion and you follow current trends, you can create your own must-have chunky knits, the hottest trend the last few years.
